What kind of pill is small yellow and round one side says 5 and other side says 5619 and dan

A round yellow 8.00mm pill with the imprint DAN 5619 on the front, and 5 on the back of it is 5mg of Diazepam (made by Watson Laboratories).

Diazepam is a benzodiazepine anticonvulsant that is used to treat anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, seizure prevention, seizures, and muscle spasm, among other illnesses. There is a low risk of abuse with this drug.

This prescription-only medication is not proven to be a risk to an unborn fetus, but should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

A recent study published in the journal Thorax found that taking benzodiazepines was associated with a 54% increase in the risk of pneumonia, and even those who did contract the disease were a fifth more likely to die within a month and a third more likely to die within three years.
